I know that this is a bad year for gatherings of any kind but i do think we can pull off a Lobstercon gathering safely. We will be camping and the event is held totally outside with PLENTY OF SPACE to spread out!! I will have masks on hand for everyone to wear and we will social distance and do anything else I, as Grand Poobah of Lobstercon, can think of to keep us all safe. If you want to join us, there is plenty of room but I do need to have advance notice to make sure I have the food enough for lunch and lobsters for dinner on Saturday! Maine is open for camping to anyone from ME, NH, VT, NY, NJ & CT. Tourists from other states are required to have negative test results from a test taken in the last 72 hours. If you are form MA, you should have test documentation in order to get into the campground.
Lobstercon2020! campground reservations have now been confirmed! We will be gathering at Thomas Point Beach & Campground on the weekend of July 10, 11 & 12 2020.......... The 2020 event will be the 21st year that W1REX has hosted the QRP event at TPB&C! I have already reserved the group campsite for the 2020 event and set the dates....so you have an ENTIRE YEAR to plan you weekend getaway to Maine!! I plan on coming up with a few special activities to make the 21st gathering something very special and an event that you will not want to miss! If you have often thought about coming to Lobstercon but never got a round tuit, you have better make this one.....
New Englands premiere QRP gathering – a weekend of QRP camping, BBQ eating, operating, socializing, lobster eating, prize winning, all round great QRP time. A $40.00 registration fee gets you wake-up coffee & donuts ( if you wake up early enough) and 2 GIANT meals on Saturday: a BBQ lunch and FRESH Maine lobster dinner. Lobstercon lobsters are fresh out of the ocean for less than an hour before they go into the pot. YOU CAN TASTE THE DIFFERENCE! Pictures of all the fun had by Lobsterconners at previous years events can be found at http://www.newenglandqrp.org

Fill out the PDF or WORD Registration form and send it back to QRPme, via Email or snail mail, to hold your spot at the lobster feast. Use Paypal, check or money order to complete the registration. See registration form for details.
Registration is $40 per person for all meals & activities on Saturday. Camping is additional and reservations should be made through Thomas Point Beach & Campground. You DO NOT need to register for camping until Lobstercon time next year...Do not forget to tell the Thomas Point Beach people that you are with the crazy radio gang...2020 Camping fees are $10 per person/night.
The Group site does not have electricity or hookups. We do run extension cords to the closest power pole. Campers requiring electricity will be charged $5 per night. Regular park camping fee camping fee is $32 per camping unit /family of 2 adults & 2 children
It would be best if most camping reservations were made on-line through the TPB
As far as I know, TPB&C will not take any reservations for 2019 until they open again next MAY so dont expect any action from them on 2020 reservations...
The camping request is in the camping section....OR you can call 1-207-725-6009
Advise each camper to include "With Lobstercon" in the Special Needs section
(NOTE from Rex: if you plan on camping with the main QRP group in the group site, you already have a spot in the GROUP campsite when you register with me! The *formal* reservation and payment to TPB&C can be made at any time before you come to Lobstercon *OR* if you want to reserve a campsite with other amenities. The campground does not open up until mid May so Mike might not be available to respond immediately to your reservation requests but reservations have been confirmed already. Please dont pester them with continuous emails/phone calls until early summer of 2019. Check the TPB&C for the opening date. If you want a regular site close to the group site, send ME an email to let me know. I will be holding a couple of close sites, in reserve, for just that purpose.)
